Lundy Island - UK, England

Lundy Island lies in the Bristol Channel on the western side of the UK to the west of Ilfracombe and Bideford in England. Lundy means "puffin island" in Norse and though fewer, puffins can be seen breeding on the cliffs in May. More than 400 other species of birds have been seen here and other wildlife includes grey seals, sika deer, wild goats, and Soay sheep. The island is protected by 400ft cliffs and features two lighthouses, both built in 1897, and Marisco Castle, built by Henry III in 1243. For years Lundy was the haunt of Vikings, Normans and pirates, but now it belongs to the National Trust.
